All of the grapes came from a vineyard situated in Lujan de Cuyo at an altitude of 1000 metres. The vineyard was planted in 1928. The wine spent twelve months in new French barriques. 5500 cases were bottles. Roberto de la Mota was the winemaker.
I purchased this wine 16 months ago and maybe it was tasting better then. Some of the primary fruit seems to have faded.
